OPINION

EDITOR’S NOTE A couple of weeks ago, I was stuck in an elevator for an hour here at the GT building, and being stuck in an elevator really makes you think, you know? Stuff like, “Why am I stuck in this elevator?” and “How long will I be stuck in this elevator?” OK, so I didn’t think about much at the time. But after reading this week’s cover stories by Wendy Mayer-Lochtefeld and Stett Holbrook, I realize that hour in the elevator would have been a great time to catch up on my summer reading. And I could have really used a drink. So I can personally vouch for Wendy’s hypothesis that books and booze are a natural match. It’s science, people!

RIDE THE BUS WITH US

Re: Green Issue (GT, 7/5): Fascinating to read about our four local heroes of the alternative-energy movement—thank you. Your article left me wondering what us ordinary folk could do in aid of preserving the livability of our beautiful planet. Large and small, the possibilities are numerous, but this is my number one: a major source of air pollution (and aggravation) in Santa Cruz County has got to be our overcrowded streets and roads. Luckily, a partial solution is ready, right on the corner or just down the street. It’s called Santa Cruz Metro— yes, the bus! I’m a regular user of our fine bus system. Its routes take me almost anywhere I want to go, from Davenport to Watsonville, from the seashore to the mountaintop. As a senior, I pay a dollar a ride, or three dollars for a day pass. Other fares are comparably reasonable, often cheaper than taking your car. So neighbors, why not take the bus when you can, save money, and give the planet your small bit of help? PATRICIA HOGAN | CAPITOLA

Anyway, this tipsy take on the summer reading guide tradition was inspired by Bookshop Santa Cruz’s “Books and Brews” series of events. We paired a few of the lit events this summer with what we felt were appropriate refreshers on our own, but I was genuinely surprised at how many were already organized around a boozy theme. Considering the intertwined history of literature and libations that Wendy writes about, I shouldn’t have been. I hope her guide inspires you to find some great summer reading and events, but before you get too deep into a book—or the tank— also check out Stett’s story about surfing metaphysicist Jaimal Yogis, who comes to Santa Cruz this week. Happy summer reading! This roundup is on us.

SHIFT YOURSELF Re: Green Issue (GT, 7/5): It’s frustrating that our president has withdrawn the U.S. from the Paris Agreement. But our community may be in a bit of climate change denial, too. Solar power is readily available and usually cheaper than PG&E. Yet our solar adoption is still low. Electric vehicles contribute one-third the carbon of their gas counterparts (less with solar). Yet, even with reasonably priced, long-range EVs available, most of us drive gas cars that fuel climate change, terrorism, and Middle East conflict. Yes, a shift is happening. There are more bicyclists, EV drivers, and solar installations. But it’s happening too slowly, considering the urgency of the problem. How can we legitimately criticize our leaders when we fail to act ourselves? If climate change is real, then let’s do something! Explore solar power for your home (see cityofsantacruz.com/ gosolar). Switch to a less polluting form of transportation (see santacruzev.org or bikesantacruzcounty.org). Try consuming lower on the food chain. In other words, don’t just talk the talk, but walk the … well, yes, walking is good too! RON GOODMAN | SANTA CRUZ

ROB BREZSNY FREE WILL ASTROLOGY Week of July 12 ARIES Mar21–Apr19 It’s not your birthday, but I feel like you need to get presents. The astrological omens agree with me. In fact, they suggest you should show people this horoscope to motivate them to do the right thing and shower you with practical blessings. And why exactly do you need these rewards? Here’s one reason: Now is a pivotal moment in the development of your own ability to give the unique gifts you have to give. If you receive tangible demonstrations that your contributions are appreciated, you’ll be better able to rise to the next level of your generosity.

TAURUS Apr20–May20 Other astrologers and fortune-tellers may enjoy scaring the hell out of you, but not me. My job is to keep you apprised of the ways that life aims to help you, educate you, and lead you out of your suffering. The truth is, Taurus, that if you look hard enough, there are always seemingly legitimate reasons to be afraid of pretty much everything. But that’s a stupid way to live, especially since there are also always legitimate reasons to be excited about pretty much everything. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to work on retraining yourself to make the latter approach your default tendency. I have rarely seen a better phase than now to replace chronic anxiety with shrewd hope.

GEMINI May21–June20 At least for the short-range future, benign neglect can be an effective game plan for you. In other words, Gemini, allow inaction to do the job that can’t be accomplished through strenuous action. Stay put. Be patient and cagey and observant. Seek strength in silence and restraint. Let problems heal through the passage of time. Give yourself permission to watch and wait, to reserve judgment and withhold criticism. Why do I suggest this approach? Here’s a secret: Forces that are currently working in the dark and behind the scenes will generate the best possible outcome.

CANCER Jun21–Jul22 “Do not be too timid and squeamish about your actions,” wrote Ralph Waldo Emerson. “All life is an experiment.” I’d love to see you make that your operative strategy in the coming weeks, Cancerian. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, now is a favorable time to overthrow your habits, rebel against your certainties, and cruise through a series of freewheeling escapades that will change your mind in a hundred different ways. Do you love life enough to ask more questions than you’ve ever asked before?

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22 The cereus cactus grows in the deserts of the southwestern U.S. Most of the time it’s scraggly and brittle-looking. But one night of the year, in June or July, it blooms with a fragrant, trumpet-shaped flower. By dawn the creamy white petals close and start to wither. During that brief celebration, the plant’s main pollinator, the sphinx moth, has to discover the marvelous event and come to gather the cactus flower’s pollen. I suspect this scenario has metaphorical resemblances to a task you could benefit from carrying out in the days ahead. Be alert for a sudden, spectacular, and rare eruption of beauty that you can feed from and propagate.

LIBRA Sep23–Oct 22 If I had more room here, I would offer an inspirational Powerpoint presentation designed just for you. In the

beginning, I would seize your attention with an evocative image that my marketing department had determined would give you a visceral thrill. (Like maybe a photoshopped image of you wearing a crown and holding a scepter.) In the next part, I would describe various wonderful and beautiful things about you. Then I’d tactfully describe an aspect of your life that’s underdeveloped and could use some work. I’d say, “I’d love for you to be more strategic in promoting your good ideas. I’d love for you to have a well-crafted master plan that will attract the contacts and resources necessary to lift your dream to the next level.”

SCORPIO Oct23–Nov21 I advise you against snorting cocaine, MDMA, heroin, or bath salts. But if you do, don’t lay out your lines of powder on a kitchen table or a baby’s diaper-changing counter in a public restroom. Places like those are not exactly sparkly clean, and you could end up propelling contaminants close to your brain. Please observe similar care with any other activity that involves altering your consciousness or changing the way you see the world. Do it in a nurturing location that ensures healthy results. P.S. The coming weeks will be a great time to expand your mind if you do it in all-natural ways such as through conversations with interesting people, travel to places that excite your awe, and encounters with provocative teachings.

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec21 In late 1811 and early 1812, parts of the mighty Mississippi River flowed backwards several times. Earthquakes were the cause. Now, more than two centuries later, you Sagittarians have a chance—maybe even a mandate—to accomplish a more modest rendition of what nature did way back then. Do you dare to shift the course of a great, flowing, vital force? I think you should at least consider it. In my opinion, that great, flowing, vital force could benefit from an adjustment that you have the wisdom and luck to understand and accomplish.

CAPRICORN Dec22–Jan19 You’re entering into the Uncanny Zone, Capricorn. During your brief journey through this alternate reality, the wind and the dew will be your teachers. Animals will provide special favors. You may experience true fantasies, like being able to sense people’s thoughts and hear the sound of leaves converting sunlight into nourishment. It’s possible you’ll feel the moon tugging at the waters of your body and glimpse visions of the best possible future. Will any of this be of practical use? Yes! More than you can imagine. And not in ways you can imagine yet.

AQUARIUS Jan20–Feb18 This is one of those rare grace periods when you can slip into a smooth groove without worrying that it will degenerate into a repetitive rut. You’ll feel natural and comfortable as you attend to your duties, not blank or numb. You’ll be entertained and educated by exacting details, not bored by them. I conclude, therefore, that this will be an excellent time to lay the gritty foundation for expansive and productive adventures later this year. If you’ve been hoping to get an advantage over your competitors and diminish the negative influences of people who don’t empathize with you, now is the time.

PISCES Feb19–Mar20 “There is a direct correlation between playfulness and intelligence, since the most intelligent animals engage in the greatest amount of playful activities.” So reports the National Geographic. “The reason is simple: Intelligence is the capacity for learning, and to play is to learn.” I suggest you make these thoughts the centerpiece of your life in the coming weeks. You’re in a phase when you have an enhanced capacity to master new tricks. That’s fortunate, because you’re also in a phase when it’s especially crucial for you to learn new tricks. The best way to ensure it all unfolds with maximum grace is to play as much as possible.

FLOW CHARTING

Now offering organic henna haircolor + body art

Re: “Pipe Scheme” (GT, 6/21): It’s interesting to read statements from members of the Klamath and Yurok tribes talking about protecting the Klamath River from threats. Each of those tribes has rights to flows in the Klamath that are critical to the health of the river and its salmon. And both tribal governments recently signed agreements indicating they are willing to make a deal that would render those rights secondary to federal irrigation water withdrawal from the River. There seems to be a disconnect. Are the

tribal leaders quoted herein going to also fight to make sure their tribal governments don’t sell the river out in backroom deals? And why are the pipeline issue and the flow issues kept separate? Aren’t they part of the same issue? Is it wrong for the Trump administration to sell out the river, but OK if tribal governments do it? I’d like Will Parrish to ask those questions and report so that we can find out what these indigenous leaders think about all the water issues and the linkages among them. FELICE PACE | KLAMATH GLEN

NEWS WARM RECEPTION Thousands honor wetsuit innovator Jack O’Neill with maybe the biggest paddle-out ever BY JACOB PIERCE

ICE STORM Santa Cruz County Sheriff Jim Hart tours local television host Joyce Anderson around the sheriff’s office lab. Some attorneys say Hart’s policies are bad for immigrant communities.

Hart Feelings

Lawyers criticize sheriff, long seen as an immigration ally, for ICE policies BY MATTHEW RENDA

W

hen deputies arrest an individual, the county jail often processes the suspect and takes fingerprints. If the suspect is undocumented, he or she may already have fingerprints in a database maintained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The federal agency would receive a notification that the person is in custody. What happens next varies, depending on the law enforcement and jurisdiction. Places like San Francisco and San Jose are at one end of the spectrum, with “sanctuary city” ordinances

preventing law enforcement agencies from using funds to participate with ICE. They’ll usually only cooperate with the agency when a suspect has committed a violent felony. At the other end of the spectrum, agencies such as the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office fully cooperate with ICE, honoring the agency’s request to hold undocumented individuals, and even allowing agents to establish an office in the jail. Local immigration attorney Michael Mehr says Santa Cruz County, which reinforced a version of sanctuary status earlier this year, falls somewhere in the middle of that spectrum. Sheriff Jim Hart

hasn’t gone as far as some leaders who refuse to work with ICE. Instead, he limits the degree to which his officers and department coordinate with the agency. A growing chorus of Santa Cruzbased defense attorneys worry Hart’s policies don’t protect the immigrant community and that, even worse, they betray public statements Hart has made regarding the issue. Hart, meanwhile, says he’s baffled by the criticism, given the public position he has taken in support of the immigrant community. A well-known supporter of statewide criminal justice reform, Hart is the only Sheriff in California >12

“Make some noise for Jack!” Brian Kilpatrick yelled into his microphone, as a circle of about 3,000 surfers, stand-up paddle boarders and kayakers screamed and cheered, splashing seawater into the air. A few thousand more watched from beaches nearby and lined East Cliff Drive on either side of the late Jack O’Neill’s famous waterfront house on Sunday morning. Huddled around the swarm of water lovers were more than 60 boats—among them the Team O’Neill catamaran, which rallied the celebratory crowd with a PA system that had, earlier in the day, blasted a mix of island, Hawaiian and rock music. “Very few people truly carve out their own path in this world, and Jack did exactly that,” said Kilpatrick, vice president of marketing for O’Neill, the eponymous company named after its founder, the wetsuit innovator who died last month. Some paddlers came carrying wild flowers, which some held in their hands, over their ears or even between their lips. Aboard Team O’Neill, mourners wore leis around their necks. The crowd was so large it was difficult to take in. “A few weeks ago, Huntington Beach tried to set the record for biggest paddleout,” fitness trainer Rocky Snyder told the gathering—referring to the other “Surf City,” one that maintains a longstanding rivalry with Santa Cruz over who truly deserves the title. “You guys over here broke them,” he said, gesturing to one-fifth of the crowd with his arm, before spreading his hand out across the horizon. “You guys shattered them!” At the Huntington Beach paddle, surfers had held hands as they gathered in a circle, per usual paddle-out technique—something that Sunday’s crowd was unable to do, with such a big group. Snyder then referenced Mitch Albom’s 1999 bestseller Tuesdays with Morrie. “I had Wednesdays with Jack,” he said. Snyder assured the crowd that every single gift anyone bought O’Neill was still somewhere in that house. >14

who’s publicly supported Senate Bill 54, a piece of legislation that would prevent the law enforcement agencies from using resources to assist federal immigration agencies. “The fear of detention, deportation and family separation is very real and is having negative impacts for public safety and law enforcement,” Hart wrote in a letter to State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon dated May 10. “Public safety is not enhanced when local law enforcement officers enforce immigration laws or act in a manner that causes suspicion within the

diverse communities they serve.” While many law enforcement officials have vehemently opposed the bill, Hart insists cooperation with ICE agents is bad for public safety. Hart has also publicly shut down any notion that the jail should hold undocumented immigrants for a couple days longer, after their release date, as some counties do, in order for ICE to more easily apprehend them. Jonathan Gettleman, a civil rights lawyer based in Santa Cruz, appreciates the sentiment. But he says that, if the sheriff believes that coordinating with ICE

makes for bad policy, he should not let ICE agents into the jail for them to interview individuals. And even though the sheriff won’t do so-called “ICE holds” as the federal agency would prefer, Hart’s office will still supply the release dates of people detained in jail—at the feds’ request—allowing suspects to be apprehended just before they leave. “I have misdemeanor clients who are terrified,” Gettleman says. “A lot of them feel it’s a better option to be out on a warrant rather than come to court. It’s a legitimate concern.” Hart says closing off the jail to ICE would amount to >16

MAIN AND SIMPLE As county public works employees scramble to repair CEMEX’s broken water line, Davenport residents are hoping the water keeps flowing. The snafu forced the Davenport Sanitation District—and the 100 households it counts as customers—to switch from San Vicente Creek, its normal source, to nearby Mill Creek. “We expect, and we hope, that the lines will be repaired before Mill Creek runs out and before water has to be trucked in,” says District 1 County Supervisor Ryan Coonerty. CEMEX, a multibillion-dollar company, is trying to avoid footing the estimated $220,000 bill, and the county legally isn’t allowed to cover the cost, prompting concern that the expense could eventually fall to the people of Davenport, a federally recognized lowincome community home to many farmworkers and retirees. Paying nearly $4,000 a year, they already have some of the highest water and sanitation bills in the state. Coonerty won’t say if county staff are pursuing legal action, but stresses they’ll “use every avenue” they can.

Andy Schiffrin, an analyst for Coonerty, says the situation’s a little complicated because, technically, it isn’t 100 percent clear who owns the pipe infrastructure—or the water rights, for that matter— and is therefore responsible for the problem. The odd thing, though, is that CEMEX claims to own both, and has been trying to sell those rights for millions of dollars. If the district owned the infrastructure, it could have gotten FEMA money for the repairs, since the breaks happened during this winter’s torrential storms, says Schiffrin, a former Santa Cruz water commissioner. “Normally the water purveyor has the rights to the water and owns the infrastructure, so this is an unusual situation,” he says. Another looming question is what to make of CEMEX’s complicated relationship with Davenport, which formed at the same time as the plant more than 100 years ago. The plant changed hands a few times, but 30-year resident Ann Parker remembers the thick, soot-like grey dust—coating her car, roof and clothesline. She recalls the chromium 6 scare and the constant noise, too, from the factory and trucks. “When they backed up,

they would go, ‘beep, beep, beep.’ They were running all over the place,” she says. But CEMEX also made generous donations every year to Davenport’s Pacific Elementary, and it still leases land for the town’s fire station at $1 a year. County Fire Chief Ian Larkin says his department’s always had “a great relationship” with the Mexico-based company. More recently, though, CEMEX was at the center of controversy locally for its reluctance to comply with a Coastal Commission order to halt unpermitted sand mining near Marina—the last coastal mine in the state. It finally reached an agreement last month to wrap that up in three years. In Davenport these days, they’ve almost become “an absentee landlord,” says county spokesperson Jason Hoppin. Still, the county’s economic development leaders are studying options to reuse the site—a pivot that would presumably involve CEMEX selling its land. Multi-year partnerships and collaborations created a reliable working relationship. What will it mean for future efforts if the foundation comes crumbling down? JACOB PIERCE

GATHER ROUND Who says summer camp is just for kids? A new series of workshops tackling issues like militarization, racism and poverty is targeting anyone and everyone, ages 15 and up. Militarism may not seem like any everyday issue for some people, but Drew Glover, programs coordinator for the Resource Center for Nonviolence, believes local law enforcement has shown signs trending toward increased militarization—like when Santa Cruz Police participated in a Department of Homeland Security raid in February, with officers showing up in armored vehicles and busting down doors, as flash bangs went off and a helicopter circled the skies. Glover, who plans on running for Santa Cruz City Council again in 2018, says sometimes the best way for anyone who feels disenfranchised to take action is through nonviolent protest. Summer Nonviolence Camp runs from July 27-31, and Glover says 20 spots are still available. It isn’t so much an outdoor experience as a crash course in social justice.

WITH A PADDLE A day that began with thick fog quickly turned sunny as thousands of surfers honored wetsuit innovator Jack O'Neill. PHOTO: JACOB PIERCE

WARM RECEPTION <11

And he marveled at O’Neill, who loved his trampoline so much that he still insisted on jumping on it at age 94. “Incredibly frightening, but there you go,” Snyder said. O’Neill had been an avid surfer, bodysurfer, sailor and balloonist. One of his proudest achievements, though, was starting the O’Neill Sea Odyssey, a nonprofit that takes children out on the Team O’Neill catamaran for field trips to learn about marine biology, navigation and conservation. Shortly before the 11 a.m. proceedings started in the waters off Pleasure Point, an orange Coast Guard helicopter circled over the crowd, flying 50 yards over the water, and shimmied from side to side. A thick fog burned off during the brief ceremony, clearing the marine layer

“He’s one of the iconic watermen of our age and any age. And obviously, he invented the wetsuit, but he also created a surf culture in places where there wasn’t one previously.” - ASSEMBLYMEMBER MARK STONE to reveal crisp blue skies. Many of the aquaphiles came with their own special flair. Some wore eyepatches in of honor of O’Neill, who had injured his eye in a surfboard-testing accident. Former Capitola Mayor Spencer Arthur paddled around from a lawn chair, which he had placed on his stand-up paddleboard. Around noon, surfers began paddling

under the catamaran—some for “good luck” and others just for fun. Before surfers began paddling back to land, Kilpatrick announced that a patch of O’Neill’s property on the cliff just north of his old house would become Jack O’Neill Park. That same dirt patch had belonged to the county years ago, says Santa Cruz County Spokesperson Jason Hoppin, but

officials gifted it to O’Neill. The surfing entrepreneur had given the county a piece of his land on the other side of his house to allow for East Cliff improvements—a little more parking and a wider path. After the speakers finished, those in the water began tossing their flowers into the surf. Aboard the catamaran, California Assemblymember Mark Stone took his purple lei off his shoulders and stripped the orchid flowers from the necklace, as he leaned over the railing, careful not to let the string fall into the water. “He’s one of the iconic watermen of our age and any age,” Stone said, of O’Neill. “And obviously, he invented the wetsuit, but he also created a surf culture in places where there wasn’t one previously.” O’Neill’s family is asking friends and fans to make any memorial contributions to oneillseaodyssey.org.

discrimination against one federal agency, given that the department does cooperate with other state and federal agencies, including the FBI and California Highway Patrol. He points out that the sheriff’s office recently returned a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) grant worth $75,000 that Hart could have used to purchase coastal protection boats. Hart says his department wants to avoid any entanglement with DHS, the federal department that oversees ICE. Even so, Kathy Licker, an attorney with the Santa Cruz County Public Defender’s Office, says she remembers an undocumented client who was arrested for misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia and was processed and released on his own recognizance—meaning that he promised to appear for all future hearings. ICE agents picked him up in the community soon after, she says. Licker says she hasn’t heard from him since. “People are being deported for having a marijuana joint,” Mehr says. “People don’t understand that because state law says it’s okay, but it’s a federal deportable offense. It’s a trap for the unwary.” All three attorneys say there’s nothing preventing Hart from implementing provisions of SB 54 in his own department right now, to make the department stop providing release dates to ICE upon request and also stop letting agents into the jail. Hart says he would rather wait for the legislature to specifically stipulate policy for law enforcement’s cooperation with ICE, rather than arbitrarily insert and enforce his own rules. “I have gone as far as I can to both follow the law and be supportive of our immigrant community,” he says. Licker says the sheriff acknowledged that these policies are detrimental to the community in his letter, making his continued tolerance of them all the more baffling. “The sheriff has written a letter saying such policies run counter to public safety, yet he continues to implement these policies while waiting on SB 54,” Licker says. “I don’t understand the acknowledgement this is not good policy on the one hand, while he continues to enforce it on the other.”

BUZZ READ S

“When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading.” — Henny Youngman

Our summer lit guide is not so think as you drunk it is | BY WENDY MAYER-LOCHTEFELD

ummertime and reading is a classic combination, and Santa Cruz is one of the best spots on the planet to stake out a bit of sand and dig into a good book. But there’s another literary pairing that’s just


followed: “Always do sober what you said you’d do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut.” The list of famous and accomplished authors who liked a drink or two or 10 is long. Chalk it up to inner demons or inner muses—most likely both—but the tipple is such a well established part of literary history that it’s become a trope. When asked if he

discussions, and the golden nectar that brings them all together—craft beer. For our summer reading guide, we’ve taken that idea and run with it, imagining a book/drink pairing for some of this summer’s top lit events. As for me, time to hit the hammock and crack open War and Peace. This year I’m going to finish it. No, really. But first, I feel thirsty …

PALE ALES AND DEEP INSIGHTS Jaimal Yogis, July 14

The clean, malty finish of Corralitos Blonde Ale flows well with the ocean sense of Jaimal Yogis’ All Our Waves Are Water: Stumbling Toward Enlightenment and the Perfect Ride, which follows him from the Himalayas to Jerusalem to San Francisco’s Ocean Beach, where he finds “that the perfect ride may well be the one we are on right now” (see sidebar, page 22). You can grab a copy of his book when he appears at Bookshop Santa Cruz on Friday. 7 p.m., Bookshop Santa Cruz, 1520 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. Free.

FAVORITE BOOKS VS. FAVORITE BEERS Books and Brews’ Lit-Hops, July 27 The cool concept for this 21st century beer hall is a wall of 70 self-pour taps filled with beers, wines and ciders from all over the world. In keeping with the mood of abundance, more than a dozen favorite reads from booksellers will be paired with beers to match their mood. A couple of personal suggestions: pair Discretion Brewery’s strong Good Faith ale with George Saunders’ Lincoln in the Bardo, a novel about love, loss, the afterlife and the human condition. And try Lúpulo’s English Bitter, Little Lies, with Maile Meloy’s novel, Do Not Become Alarmed. The possibilities are endless, but keep in mind that you could drive your friends and family crazy. I speak from experience. 7 p.m., Pour Taproom, 110 Cooper St., Suite 100B, Santa Cruz. $16 ticket includes one free book and 20 percent off your food and drinks. Non-ticketed attendees still welcome.

as timeless. Anyone in a book club knows what I’m talking about: booze. While I won’t go as far as William Faulkner, who famously said, “Pouring out liquor is like burning books,” I believe a page-turner and a good stiff drink is what summer is all about. Ask Ernest Hemingway, who put the daiquiri on the literary map and gave drinkers a great piece of advice he probably never

drank, Stephen King replied, “Of course—I just said I was a writer.” Dorothy Parker still has namesake cocktails served in bars from Soho to São Paulo. Visit Faulkner’s grave in Oxford, Mississippi, and you’ll probably find a bottle of his favorite whiskey, Jack Daniels, left in tribute. If you’ve read Kurt Vonnegut’s Breakfast of Champions, you know it isn’t Wheaties, it’s martinis. Ian Fleming was an ardent fan of the martini; in fact, he placed one into 007’s hands so often that a tongue-in-cheek study by the British Medical Journal found that the spy drank 65-92 units of vodka a week. It gives a whole new meaning to “shaken, not stirred.” Like all faithful, bickering partners, books and booze have a checkered past. For a powerful look at the corrosive price of this sometimes terrible marriage, read Olivia Laing’s insightful, sympathetic book, The Trip to Echo Springs, On Writers and Drinking. The title refers to an obscure line from a Tennessee Williams play that means a trip to the liquor cabinet. Through the troubled careers of luminaries like F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Cheever, and Raymond Carver, she dispels any romantic notions about drunken reverie and creative genius. But when the marriage is good, it’s a beautiful thing. Within reason, alcohol can enhance a good story, especially for readers, who are essentially guests at the literary salon. What guest doesn’t appreciate a good cocktail? Just as beer livens up the barbecue and wine turns us into critics at the art opening (preference for wine has been scientifically correlated to a higher IQ, which in turn may be correlated to a higher sense of self-importance), they also open our minds to insight. And snacks! If you’re inclined to bend the elbow while you turn the pages, Bookshop Santa Cruz is ready to meet you halfway with their Books and Brews Summer Series. It’s designed to lure literary-minded locals to some of the best breweries and taprooms in town, with the promise of books, games,

Lúpulo Beer House cultivates relationships with small brewers and specializes in beers that are hard to come by. The workshop feel here harkens back to alehouses of old, where you ducked in to drink a pint and wrestle with ideas. As a nod to history buffs, lovers of the musical Hamilton, and our proud national heritage of beer-soaked political debate, this Books and Brews event at Lúpulo will feature literature about the fantastic and sometimes forgotten founders of our imperfect union. It will also test your founding American trivia skills in the hotly competitive yet highly good-natured Race to Revolution game. Did you know that George Washington kept a beer recipe in his notebook? That random fact may or may not help you, but know this: when swag bags, bragging rights, and liberty are at stake, Americans have shown that

PILSNER-STAINED LOVE LETTERS Community Read: ‘Everyone Brave is Forgiven’ by Chris Cleave, at New Bohemia Brewing Company, Aug. 21 Named after the old kingdom of Bohemia in central Europe, New Bohemia Brewing Company is a great place to drink a Vienna Lager like Velvet Revolution and discuss a book about WWII. You didn’t think you’d coast through this series without actually reading a book, did you? That’s why we’re here, people. Oh yeah, and the beer. Luckily, Chris Cleave’s brilliant novel, Everyone Brave is Forgiven, is well worth your time. His grandparents’ love letters serve as inspiration for historical fiction that drops you into the heart of WWII. From London to France to Malta, the stories of characters who serve, falter, fall in love, and challenge injustice is smart, witty, and chilling. It reminds us how far and wide punishment spread beyond the Jews during WWII. Anyone “different” was marginalized and targeted. Those lessons still resonate today. Fire up your literary insights and dip into the meaty (not to mention thirsty) conversation. 7 p.m., New Bohemia Brewing Company, 1030 41st Ave., Santa Cruz. 50 percent off your first beer with a copy of ‘Everyone Brave is Forgiven.’

Jaimal Yogis chases surf and spirituality in ‘All Our Waves Are Water’ BY STETT HOLBROOK

T

here is something about immersing oneself in saltwater for extended periods of time and dodging walls of waves that lends to some deep thinking about life and our place in the world. Surfing has recently produced some excellent works of nonfiction that have little to do with stonedout surfer stereotypes. Last year’s

Pulitzer Prize for autobiography went to William Finnegan for Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life. Steve Kotler’s West of Jesus: Surfing, Science and the Origins of Belief is a fine book on the intersection of surfing and spirituality. And I’ll add Jaimal Yogis’ new memoir, All Our Waves Are Water: Stumbling Toward Enlightenment and the Perfect Ride, to the mix.

Yogis, a San Francisco–based author, wrote the book as a follow-up to Saltwater Buddha, a coming-ofage story that blends surfing and spiritual seeking. All Our Waves picks up where he left off, and chronicles Yogis’ multidisciplinary spiritual quests and more earthbound struggles of career, friendship and starting a family. Yogis’ spiritual and physical journeys take him to the Himalayas, Jerusalem, a Washington Heights friary, Puerto Escondido, Mexico, and the cold water of San Francisco’s Ocean Beach.

Yogis sprinkles the book with quotable quotes that connect with the here and now: “God is a circle whose center is everywhere and circumference nowhere” (Voltaire); “Without going into the ocean, it is impossible to find precious, priceless pearls” (Vimalakirti Sutra); and my favorite and most apt to this book, “You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop” (Rumi). Buddhism is the guiding light, and the book and Yogis offers a practical tour of Buddhist philosophy. The subtext of All Our Waves is not surfing, but the search for the universal and the divine in whatever form she/he/it takes. “The word ‘spiritual’ can be a bit confusing,” Yogis says. “In Zen and other non-dual schools of spirituality like Vedanta yoga, everything is considered spiritual, even the most mundane tasks like washing dishes. So surfing is just one of the things I do because I love to do it.” What Westerners are more likely to think of as “spiritual” also finds its place in that context: “Because I practice meditation and am interested in what you might call spiritual or philosophical questions—why are we here, how do we realize our potential, how do we reduce suffering—the sea becomes another place to practice.” With equal doses of humor, selfdeprecation and well-rendered storytelling, Yogis does a great job making these heady themes accessible and entertaining through personal experiences. In the toxic fumes that characterizes American political and cultural discourse of late, All Our Waves Are Water is a lungful of fresh air and a poignant reminder of the wider world beyond the glow of the TV screen. Yogis is a sharp and insightful writer who has the good sense to temper his spiritual pursuits with a healthy dose of humility and humanity. Jaimal Yogis will discuss ‘Our Waves are Water’ at Bookshop Santa Cruz on Friday, July 14 at 7 p.m., at Bookshop Santa Cruz, 1520 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. Free.

<24 celebrate their relationship. “I wanted to make a song that is very clearly talking about being queer, using that word very purposefully and intentionally,” says Simone. “It’s pretty literal, it’s about celebrating being your most authentic self and loving yourself.” “This is why we’re doing this work: we are your community, we see you and we are perfect—being different than the ‘norm’ is fucking cool!” says Che with a laugh. Among the few artists who are producing music about the queer experience, much of the language is vague, says Simone, and a lot of it takes a more sombre tone. “I was excited to shift that perspective and be like, ‘Wait, we’re as happy as can be and so in love,” says Che, who doesn’t usually dabble in the music production side, but wrote “Queer” in a stroke of inspiration. After the success of Motion Pacific’s winter cabaret show, director Abra Allan was looking for new ways to engage people and maintain that excitement. When resident choreographer Melissa Wiley came up with the name “Cabagay,” the next steps just seemed obvious, says Allan. In partnership with the Museum of Art and History’s Subjects to Change teen program and the Diversity Center, the variety show will feature local crowd pleasers the Wily Minxes, Micha, and Kim Luke as well as returning out-oftowners Claire Melbourne, Pearl Marrill, and Jeff Dinnell. Motion will preface the 21 and over cabaret show on July 14 with a free teen-led open mic at 5:30 p.m. for all ages and all art forms. Motion Pacific and Santa Cruz hold a special place in Che and Simone’s hearts. “Neither of us are from Santa Cruz, but I feel like every time we’re back it feels like we’re home, because that’s where we found ourselves and where we found each other. It’s where we started, it’s the place that we fell in love,” says Simone.

For Che, it’s also the place where she found her queer identity, with the help of Leslie Johnson’s local dance company, Flex, which was active until 2014. “It’s something that I was always aware of, but really terrified of, so I did everything I thought would keep me safe,” says Che. “Once I found Santa Cruz and Flex—they were so empowered in their sensuality and their sexuality as strong, amazing queer people—it just opened a whole new world for me. I felt really supported and loved through a community, which is what helped me come out.” Queer performance is all about disrupting heteronormative worlds, according to José Esteban Muñoz, says Claire Melbourne. For her performance in Cabagay, she’s taking on Muñoz’s theory that nothingness is assigned to people who don’t fit the norm and that performance can work as a gesture towards something that doesn’t fully exist yet—queerness in its complexity, as Muñoz wrote. “Art has the potential to hold nuance and contradiction in a way that I think we’re not generally encouraged to do—we’re encouraged to choose one or the other,” says Melbourne, who is doing her MFA in dance at Ohio State University. “Our whole lives are nuance and contradiction. Learning to embrace that is the most important thing to me about performance art.” Art is meant to challenge convention, says Melbourne, and in that way is a powerful conduit to the public consciousness. That’s why Simone and Che do what they do, ever so loudly and proudly. “As a queer woman, I’ve recently been feeling like I can speak through movement—it’s been my most confident language since I can remember,” says Che. “I think in a time where politics are chaos and where we can be public figures in being positive queer people in the world, this feels so important.” Info: Open Mic 5:30 p.m. July 14, Cabagay 8 p.m., July 14 & 15, 131 Front St., Santa Cruz. $20-$50 sliding scale. motionpacific.com.

THEATER

GETTING HITCHED The Bobbies (Allen Gilmore and Mike Ryan) investigate Richard Hannay (Brian Smolin) and Pamela (Grace

Rao) in Santa Cruz Shakespeare’s adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s film ‘The 39 Steps.’ PHOTO: JANA MARCUS

Stepping Up Santa Cruz Shakespeare kicks off season with uproarious ‘39 Steps’ BY LISA JENSEN (especially in the ’30s period setting), and nudge-nudge, winkwink references to Hitchcock and his oeuvre pop up throughout. You don’t have to know the film to enjoy the play, but those familiar with the Hitchcock version will get a special kick out of the sheer chutzpah of this interpretation. At its center is Richard Hannay (Brian Smolin), a bored young man puttering around his London flat one evening who decides to distract himself by “doing something mindless and utterly useless—I’ll go to the theater!” It’s the first step on the road to disaster. At a music hall performance by a mentalist called Mr. Memory (Allen Gilmore) and his partner/handler (Mike Ryan), Hannay

meets Annabella (Grace Rao), a sexy dame with a ripe German accent, who begs to come home with him. In short order, the mystery woman is dead in his flat. The police suspect him, the sinister men who were following her are now following him, and Hannay is on the run. All he knows is she was trying to convey secret information about an international spy ring to a colleague in the wilds of Scotland, so he grabs a map and takes the train north, hoping to sort it all out before the police can arrest him for murder. But who cares about the plot? All the fun is in the playing. Smolin, who won hearts and cracked funny bones in the title role of The Liar a couple of seasons back,

(The Santa Cruz Shakespeare production of ‘The 39 Steps’ plays through Sept. 3 at the Audrey Stanley Grove in DeLaveaga Park. For ticket info, call 460-6399, or visit santacruzshakespeare.org/tickets.)

I

t’s not exactly the Bard, but the 2017 season of Santa Cruz Shakespeare gets off to a ripping start with The 39 Steps. Based on an adventure novel by John Buchan, famously made into Alfred Hitchcock’s classic 1935 chase thriller movie, the story gets another makeover in director Paul Mullins’ uproarious production— long on sly wit, short on logic, and absolutely irresistible. This 2005 stage adaptation by English playwright Patrick Barlow is an exercise in comic audacity. All the parts are played by a cast of four—three men and one woman— in a variety of costumes, accents, and disguises. Barlow takes his inspiration mostly from the movie

plays only one character, and his Hannay anchors the show with his determination to be a good sport, his insinuating double-takes, and his acrobatic dexterity. (It’s a riot when he limbo-slides out of an armchair from under a dead body.) The subtle ways he preens while running in place onstage as police bulletins describe him in ever more flattering terms is also very funny. Rao is also terrific as the three principal women—Annabella, the femme fatale, Pamela, an innocent Scottish lass married to a parsimonious old farmer, and Margaret, an angry blonde who winds up handcuffed to Hannay in his trek across the Scottish moors. She and Smolin get a lot of comic mileage out of those cuffs, trying to go over, no, under, no, around a wooden style out in the country, or traversing a bog — played by Ryan. Ryan and Gilmore (their parts are called Clown 1 and Clown 2), play everybody else, and they’re both hilarious. Gilmore is especially memorable as the ferociously selfabnegating farmer saying grace, or an ancient staffer at a political rally attempting to set up a podium. Ryan brings down the house in the rally scene as an elderly speaker with a miniscule voice. A lot of the biggest laughs come from the Clowns missing their cues, or struggling to change costumes fast enough—like their virtuoso duet on a train platform, playing three parts simultaneously by feverishly switching hats. Scenic designers Annie Smart and Justine Law’s rolling staircase set cleverly adapts to every locale, from music hall to train station to manor house. Special kudos are due to properties designer/master M Woods for transforming objects like crates, chairs, and a ladder into a train, a car, a railroad trestle, and the Scottish Highlands. (One door frame on wheels is particularly ingenious.) B. Modern’s period costumes are deft and impeccable. Clearly, everyone involved in this production is having a high old time, and the audience can’t help but be swept along.

Why the Dirty Bourbon River Show packed up the circus to focus on its music BY AARON CARNES

28

T

here’s a reason the Dirty Bourbon River Show is not called the Dirty Bourbon River Band. This combination of high-energy traditional New Orleans jazz, Gogol Bordello-level punk rock and circus is all about the live experience, and there’s no way that recordings can really do it justice. Yet somehow DBRS has cranked out 10 studio albums—and they only started in 2009. It was in 2011 that the members quit their jobs and hit the road for seven months of the year, making the project their full-time gig. It’s been a prolific project ever since. Remarkably, it’s only now that the

group has considered what should have been the most obvious decision from day one: a live album. “Not sure if it’s going to happen yet, but we’ve been talking about it. Our live show is really our pride,” says bassist Matt Thomas. “Trying to capture that energy is something we’re going to try to do.” In the meantime, DBRS has made the exact opposite: a slickly produced concept album. The new record, The Flying Musical Circus, was released in April, the group’s first release since 2015’s Important Things Humans Should Know. Previously, they had released nine albums in a shade under seven years. This one took a bit longer.

It’s an entirely different album for the New Orleans five-piece. Still drawing from the same influences— funk, jazz, punk, circus music, blues, big band brass—and utilizing primarily horns, drums and an accordion, the members, for the first time, slowed down and focused on each and every part. “The producer we worked with, he really pushed us, he pushed our boundaries a bit. We put everything under the microscope,” Thomas says. The songs bounce around from genre to genre, which has been DBRS’ thing since the beginning. They made the decision to embrace the music of their city, while

simultaneously subverting it with a manic energy and irreverence to tradition. Not to mention being the craziest act in town. “You just throw everything into it,” says Thomas. “It was like a raucous crazy party.” There’s a narrative story on The Flying Musical Circus, which lead singer Noah Adams wrote, and it taps into the sadness of life. He sings from the perspective of a party animal, “a challenging human being,” Thomas says. He searches for meaning and redemption. It gets pretty dark at times. (“All my friends are dead/Or lost their mind from shooting smack/And every woman that I’ve loved/Now hates my guts, won’t call me back.”) For an ensemble that sees itself as a show, releasing a concept album is an interesting decision. Thomas sees the vibe of the album as a commentary on the progress of the group itself. In the early days, everyone went in so deep that they all moved into a house together and basically only played music, toured and recorded. And in those early sets, they exerted every ounce of themselves every night. “This is more of an introspective, more reflective kind of album. A lot of our other recordings are about silliness and parties and this big circus-y theatrical aspect to it. This album is taking a step back to reflect on the whole thing,” Thomas says. The members found the experience of slowing down in the studio and dissecting the music to be refreshing. With all of the touring they’d done, and albums they’d cranked out together, the music had been about chemistry between members. Rarely did anyone get the luxury of isolating their parts, and improving the minutiae of what they were doing. The process has altered the live show a little bit. Or maybe just getting older and having done this for a little while has changed the live show. But it’s still a show. “We still have that party aspect to it, but we try to engage the audience a little bit more,” Thomas says. “We’re all getting a little older. We’re trying to find a balance in life. We’re real proud of this album just because of everything it’s taken to get where we are.” INFO: 9 p.m., July 17, Crepe Place, 1134 Soquel Ave., Santa Cruz. $10. 429-6994.

LOVE YOUR

LOCAL BAND PATRICK MAGUIRE

Patrick Maguire can’t remember a time in his life when he wasn’t surrounded by music. He’s one of 33 first cousins—30 of them, he says, play music. This is true of his parents, uncles and aunts as well. Family jams were not uncommon. He was inspired by the talent and broad-ranging musical interests of his family members.

JULY 12-18, 2017 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

“My mother has a voice like Alison Krauss. She has stage fright, so she never really took it on to do it professionally,” Maguire says. “She exposed me to everything from bluegrass to oldies to blues to rock ’n’ roll.”

36

Originally from Maine, and then living in Colorado as a sales executive, Maguire decided to move to Santa Cruz in 2012 to pursue his dreams as a musician. While he’d been playing his whole life, it wasn’t until 2010, at the age of 30, that he wrote his first song. He wanted more. It’s only this year that he’s pursued a solo career as a singer-songwriter. He’s been featured on KPIG, headlined Moe’s Alley, and is now playing a show at Don Quixote’s. “The goal and the dream has always been to play music, and it was one I didn’t think was going to happen throughout my 20s,” Maguire says. “It’s been nothing but amazing so far. It’s really been just learn on the fly.” AARON CARNES

JANE MONHEIT

THURSDAY 7/13 COUNTRY-ROCK

CALICO THE BAND Calico is generally thought of as being a printed cotton fabric or a multi-colored animal. Calico the Band, on the other hand, is short for California Country—and this band delivers. With a Los Angeles-by-way-of-Bakersfield sound that draws from the Byrds, Joni Mitchell, Buffalo Springfield and even Fleetwood Mac, this duo, comprising Kirsten Proffit and Manda Mosher, crafts harmony-rich, catchy tunes that feel familiar and fresh. And by tipping a hat to the state’s rich country tradition, the women take the modern Southern California country-rock movement to exciting places. CJ INFO: 7:30 p.m. Don Quixote’s, 6275 Hwy. 9, Felton. $10. 335-2800.

ROCK

PAN DULCE It’s hard to pin down any one genre in the music of local six-piece Pan Dulce. The band’s CD Baby page uses words like “ska,” “reggae,” “funk rock,” “party music,” and “Lana Del

Rey.” It’s all true, even the bit about melancholy dream-pop à la Del Rey. It’s a true blending of normally ill-fitted ingredients whipped together to create something that you can dance and cry along to with equal intensity. The group headlines Moe’s Alley with Sacramento reggae band Zuhg, and San Jose cumbia band Corazón Salvaje. AARON CARNES INFO: 8:30 p.m. Moe’s Alley, 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz. $7/adv, $10/ door. 479-1854.

FRIDAY 7/14 REGGAE

ETANA Since her 2008 debut, The Strong One, Etana (Swahili for “the strong one”) has become one of the biggest female vocals in reggae music. Born outside of Kingston, Jamaica in August Town, Etana moved to South Florida with her family when she was nine. During her college years, she began experimenting with music and found her voice soon after. As an adult, she moved back to Jamaica, where she was picked up by VP Records, the world’s largest distributor of reggae music. Nine years later, with

four albums under her belt, Etana’s powerfully sultry voice continues to deliver irie praise to the hearts of audiences worldwide. MAT WEIR INFO: 9 p.m. Moe’s Alley, 1535 Commercial Way, Santa Cruz. $15/adv, $20/door. 479-1854.

REGGAE

THOMAS MAPFUMO In Jamaica, roots reggae is a powerful tool, the voice of the oppressed. It’s precisely for this reason that the music has lasted so long, and spread far beyond its home country. The rebellious spirit of giving voice to the voiceless has stayed with the music, as is the case with Thomas Mapfumo, a Zimbabwe artist who has mixed the Jamaican grooves with the traditional mbira music he grew up with. He uses the music as a vehicle for civil rights advocacy for the people of Zimbabwe. He’s been making powerful protest music since the late ’70s. Nowadays, he lives in exile and uses music to comment on global corruption in government. AC INFO: 7:30 p.m. Kuumbwa Jazz Center, 320 Cedar St., Santa Cruz. $25/adv, $30/door. 427-2227.

So many things in that sentence sound about as old as “pagers” and “TV Guide,” and yet Reel Big Fish’s popularity hasn’t waned. Earlier this year, Thrillist ran an article positing that ska was “coming back,” citing Reel Big Fish’s success as proof. What they didn’t understand is that the smart-alecky Orange County skapunk ensemble has spent the last two decades packing clubs around the world with eager skanking kids on an annual basis. They’re not back. They haven’t gone anywhere. AC INFO: 6 p.m. Catalyst, 1011 Pacific Ave., Santa Cruz. $28/adv, $30/door. 429-4135.

styles with ease, Monheit breathes new life into standards and pulls back into the spotlight a genre that once epitomized pop music. For the “Ella Fitzgerald Songbook Sessions,” Monheit pays tribute to one of the defining artists of all time, and honors one of her own primary influences. As Monheit puts it, “What I really got from Ella is her warmth, her charm, the joy she puts in her music. Ella showed us that it can be about total joy.” CJ

An emerging star in the jazz world, pianist Ben Rosenblum has been accused of possessing the “hands of a diamond cutter” and “caressing [music] with the reverence it merits.” High praise for an artist still in his early 20s, but Rosenblum has a long history with music—and jazz in particular. Born and raised in New York City, and a graduate of the Juilliard School, he received numerous awards for his compositions and musicianship before he was even out of his teens. Rosenblum’s current trio includes Monterey-raised Bay Area star Kanoa Mendenhall on bass and New York City’s Ben Zweig on drums.

FILM

BELL OF ARABIA Actress Tilda Swinton narrates and co-produces ‘Letters From Baghdad,’ which tells the story of archaeologist, political force, visionary and spy Gertrude Bell.

Desert Bell JULY 12-18, 2017 | GOODTIMES.SC | SANTACRUZ.COM

Gertrude Bell profiled in ‘Letters From Baghdad’ BY LISA JENSEN

42

C

alling all uppity women! If you’re looking for a role model on how to defy the rules and live the life you choose, look no further than Gertrude Bell. Born into a genteel English Victorian family, she carved out her own destiny as historian, traveler, mountain-climber, archeologist, map-maker, author, intelligence operator, and renowned expert on the peoples and politics of the area we now call the Middle East. In her day—the turn of the last century, through World War I and its aftermath—she was known as “the female Lawrence of Arabia.” The story of Gertrude Lowthian Bell

is told in fascinating terms in Letters From Baghdad. Co-directed by Sabine Krayenbuhl and Zeva Oelbaum, this documentary relies on a lifetime of letters and journal entries in which Bell tells her own story as she lived it, with her own words spoken by the film’s co-producer, Tilda Swinton. The filmmakers also present a treasure trove of Bell’s own photographs, snapped during her adventures to exotic locales like the Alps, Tehran, Babylon, Damascus, and Constantinople (among many other places). In addition to Bell’s personal photographs, the filmmakers use lots of newsreel footage from the

era, along with still photos of Bell and her circle. These were mostly British politicians and governors stationed in the area (many of them refer to Bell as their “righthand man”), among whom Bell established a reputation for her vast experience with the peoples, cultures, and even the language of “Arabia”—and with whom she helped shape the political realities of the region after WWI and the collapse of the Ottoman Empire. Bell emerges as a strong-minded woman constantly tilting against convention and expectation. After taking a First in History in her class at Oxford, she’s shipped off

to “the East” by her stepmother, in hopes that exposure to foreign society “might help to get rid of her Oxford-y manner.” (Actors portraying Bell’s various friends, family, and colleagues, filmed in black-and-white, are “interviewed” on screen, speaking words written about Bell by those who knew her.) Determined to “penetrate Arabia” by making maps and studying artifacts, Bell lands in Cairo in 1915, working in Intelligence with T. E. Lawrence and archeologist David Hogarth. She was “a wonderful person,” to quote Lawrence in one of the faux interviews. “Not very much like a woman,” he adds. Finding much more common ground with the men in the British diplomatic and political circles she moves in than with their wives, Bell writes to her father back home about how she would have liked the convenience of a wife to keep house for her. Valued for her extensive knowledge of “inter-tribal relationships,” Bell’s influence reaches its zenith when she’s enlisted to help divide postwar “Arabia” between the British, the French, and the Turks. Ultimately, Bell is disillusioned by the failure after the war to establish an autonomous Arabian state of Mesopotamia; instead, Britain chooses to continue its occupation of the region. (They don’t call themselves conquerors, but “liberators”—and, boy, does that sound familiar.) The Brits’ general cluelessness about governing the region, coupled with their relentless profiteering, is further complicated by the presence of Standard Oil, rearing its reptilian head in collusion with disgruntled Arab rebels in hopes of wresting away oil rights for the U.S. The thorny issue of how to govern Iraq (and who has the right to do it) continues to play out on the world stage. Letters From Baghdad does not presume to offer any solutions. But it does offer an impressive portrait of a singular woman of her own—or any other—time. LETTERS FROM BAGHDAD *** (out of four) Featuring the voice of Tilda Swinton. A documentary by Zeva Oelbaum and Sabine Krayenbuhl. A Vitagraph Films release. Not rated. 95 minutes.

Malabar’s Sri Lankan and Asian fusion dishes are a parade of bold vegan and vegetarian flavors BY MARIA GRUSAUSKAS

I

n the end, it didn’t really matter what Jake and I had decided after our deep contemplation of Malabar’s menu of original, wholesome-yet-exotic vegetarian dishes, salads and appetizers. With each selection, Raj Weerasekare squinted his eyes, appearing to study our very appetites, and steered us toward something he thought we would enjoy more. By the time Weerasekare whisked himself away to the kitchen, we had figured out that he is also the chef

and founder at Malabar, and we sat back with excitement and growling bellies for what was to come. As it turns out, Malabar is not only the place to come for vegan, vegetarian, plant-filled dinners of Sri Lankan and Asian persuasions, but also the place to come if you’re in the mood to follow the chef’s lead. We were happy we did. On this early summer night, the knife- and alcohol-free dining room was peaceful, and the notes of a live singer traveled through the

expansive dining room flecked with hand-painted lotus flowers. The summer season always picks up after July 4, says Weerasekare, especially with international tourists who read about the place on Yelp. The Roti Paratha ($7) arrived first, steaming-hot and scrunched, Singapore style, into a flaky pastrylike blossom. “Eat it with your hands,” our waiter/chef instructed, and we dug in, tearing off pieces of the fried bread—crispy on the outside and tender inside—and

dipping it into the aromatic galangal curry sauce. We found ourselves unable to resist repeating the action again and again, so it was with great relief that the next to-die-for appetizer arrived when it did. Also the chef’s recommendation, the Catalan croquettes ($6), were fried ever-so-lightly, resulting in a thin, golden brown skin around the hearty potato filling, which included spinach, the sweet pop of black raisins, and just enough Gorgonzola to render the filling creamy, without overpowering its flavor. All of this was offset by the refreshing relish of pickled green papaya and mustard. Score. “I used to make this one with pine nuts,” says Weerasekare, who changes the menu often, but this version has been on the menu ever since a a visiting couple from Spain shared the family-restaurant recipe with him. Two entrees followed: the Lotus Root Kofta ($11.50), with a sauce of cashew, coconut, and white poppy seed curry that was both delicate and rich, inflected with cardamom and just a tiny bit of cream—the perfect match for the small round lotus root, apricot and potato dumplings it hugged. This is one of those dishes that appears small, but packs a filling punch. And finally, the Brinjal Basil ($11.50, vegan), a colorful celebration of the nightshade family. This mound of wok’d eggplant, seitan, mixed peppers, basil, and red and orange cherry tomatoes, warm in their own ripe juices, is tossed with a sweet, Chinese-leaning sauce and topped with crunchy cashews, fried red onions, and a sprinkling of sesame seeds. It was as delicious as it was beautiful, and as Jake said, it’s a dish that tastes like summer. A bowl of steaming brown rice played a wonderful supportive role. Needless to say, we left satiated— and with leftovers—and promised to come back for the dosas, which come with a rainbow of different sauces, in several variations—a decision we’ll absolutely leave up to the chef. Malabar is open for dinner Tuesday through Sunday, 5-9 p.m. 514 Front St., Santa Cruz. 458-3023.

f a Santa Cruz native and secondgeneration Italian tells me with absolute conviction that he knows where to get the best calamari in town, it’s in my best interest to at least check it out. Which is how I find myself sitting at a plastic table at Aldo’s on the west side of the Santa Cruz Harbor, watching the July sun glint off of dozens of gleaming hulls, the marine layer hardly a whisper at the edge of a bluebird sky. My beer is cold, the server is charming, and I occasionally make eye contact with a sea lion shyly swimming between the boats. While the iconic restaurant at the harbor mouth is being remodeled and the seawall underneath it repaired, Aldo’s continues to host guests just 500 meters north of the original location on an outdoor waterfront lawn between B and D docks. Just steps from the water, there really isn’t a bad seat on the patio. And after a thorough investigation, I can assure you that they definitely know their way around a plate of fried squid. Calamari, like pizza, burgers and other comfort foods, is a dish that

has a tendency to stoke passionate and unresolvable arguments about its ideal preparation. You may disagree, but I want plenty of tentacles. I want an ample amount of crunchy batter to coat tender, neverrubbery squid without sliding off. I will alternate between the cocktail and the tartar sauce, and if you don’t like lemon, then you might as well get your own plate. And I have to say, my friend was right. The calamari at Aldo’s is some of the best I’ve had in Santa Cruz in the decade that I’ve lived here. Given this historic family’s reputation, I can’t say that I’m at all surprised. Knowing that these squid were caught in the bay, while most other seafood available by the water is shipped from other locales, makes the experience that much more satisfying. But honestly, although I may have been drawn to this feature by the main attraction—the “best calamari in Santa Cruz”—as I look out on the peaceful harbor, a sunburn beginning to pink the back of my neck as I fantasize what I would call the sailboat I’ll one day own, a lot has to be said for the supporting cast.

Albatross Ridge A sparkling Rosé Pinot Noir 2016 to pair with sushi BY JOSIE COWDEN

A

fter a few attempts to meet up with Garrett Bowlus of Albatross Ridge, I finally got to his tasting room in Carmel. My old school friend from England, Una, was staying for a couple of weeks, and I always love to take house guests wine tasting to show off the exceptional wines of Santa Cruz and Monterey counties. Albatross Ridge is named after winemaker Garrett’s great-grandfather William Hawley Bowlus’ Albatross gliders, which he used to fly off the ridgetops of Monterey’s coast back in the 1930s. Albatross Ridge’s impressive labels depict a glider and a figure touching a wing—in a tribute, I’m sure, to famed engineer William Hawley Bowlus, whose pioneering sailplanes are now in the Smithsonian. I took a bottle of Albatross Ridge Rosé Pinot Noir ($40) to one of my favorite places to dine, Imura Japanese Restaurant in Watsonville, as I felt it would pair well with their delicious sushi and sashimi. We had young family guests staying with us from Omaha, Nebraska, and they were drawn to the meat dishes offered by Imura. After a round of Japanese sake, served in delightful little cups, our

attentive server Shanice cracked open the sparkling Rosé, which comes with delightful tart fruit flavors and lots of fizz—a splendid pairing with all of the mouthwatering sushi we ordered. The bottle comes with an easy-off beercap top. “Produced in limited quantities using the méthode ancestrale, our sparkling Pétillant Naturel Rosé is sourced from just seven distinct rows of Pinot Noir at our estate,” says winemaker Garrett Bowlus. The Albatross Ridge tasting room is on Mission Street between Ocean and 7th avenues, Carmel-by-the-Sea. Open daily from 1 p.m. Visit albatrossridge. com for more info.

PASSPORT DAY The next Passport day, when many wineries are open to the public for a complimentary tasting—providing you have a Passport from the Santa Cruz Mountains Winegrowers Association—is Saturday, July 15.

There is a quote from the book Labors of Hercules that explains the task given to Hercules (humanity) during the month of Cancer. Hercules represents humanity (the World Disciple), living on Earth, encountering life experiences, given tasks and being (often severely) tested. For the Cancer task, the Fourth Labor, Hercules must make a choice. He must develop discernment and wisdom that leads to Right Choice. And then he must demonstrate and follow the “obedience of the heart.” This particular task is important to understand. The present world situation is demanding that we, too, have discernment and wisdom to make a Right Choice. It determines our future. From the Fourth Labor of Hercules (Cancer), “The Great One, within Shamballa, spoke to the

Throughout the year, great changes will occur. Your outlook on life will be concerned with freedom, especially how you express and conduct yourself. Breaking from the past will also occur. You will be like Snow White, “awakened” from a deep sleep. The awakening will happen through unexpected and interesting events. Break this gently to people who care about you so, as you change, they are not surprised. Cherish each surprising moment.

Some things in your relations with others, with close associates and intimates become surprising. Should you feel limitations, loss of freedom or resistance from others, you will shake it off immediately. It may be difficult to rely on anyone. If this occurs, be the ‘reliable one’ for others. Breaking free from things doesn’t mean you need to be cruel. Be gentle and kind—always, everywhere, with everyone. Isn’t kindness the Dalai Lama’s religion?

Teacher: ‘Where is the son of man (Sanskrit for the “thinkers,” all of humanity)?, who is the Son of God? How fares he, how is he being tested and with what service is he engaged?’ The Teacher said, ‘The third great test (Gemini) provided much teaching. He ponders and reflects upon it.’ “The Great One said to the Teacher, ‘Provide him now with a test that evokes his wisest choice. Send him to labor in a field where he must decide which voice, of all the many voices, will arouse the obedience of his heart. Provide a test of great simplicity on the outer plane, yet a test, which awakens, interiorly, the fullness of his wisdom and the rightness of his power to choose. Let him now proceed with the fourth test.’” Saturday, July 22, as Sun enters Leo, we (Hercules) begin the Fifth Labor (test).

Unusual events happen particularly with your health. You might find unexpected difficulties almost every day affecting your well-being. How to handle these is to adapt to the realization that all patterns in your life are altering, including health. Perform daily tasks with deep awareness lest a spider or snake bite you. These are symbols for change. Have homeopaths and essential oils nearby.

Create new routines that include all things healthy. Each day you may find yourself disrupted. Everything becomes non-traditional and unconventional. This includes your health and vitality, which you need to pay attention to. Restlessness means a new rhythm is needed. You may work non-stop at times, then work not at all other times. Alternative healing benefits your health. Slow down. Prana breathe.

GEMINI May 22–June 20

SAGITTARIUS Nov22–Dec20

Your friendships and social life begin to shift. You meet new and unusual people, encounter new ideas, consider group life more seriously. You study uncommon lifestyles and listen to alternative news. The idea of being free and free-spirited is long overdue. Vesta, the asteroid of “self as found object” is in Gemini. You must make a Vesta box. Find a box; fill it with treasures that represent your true self. You discover you are a lamp unto yourself.

Know that more and more you will begin to express yourself in unconventionally creative ways. You will become even more so the “out of the ordinary” friend. Children (especially), non-conformists and oddballs will love you. There will be sudden occurrences in your love life. Previous inhibitions fall away. You become freer, spontaneous, even eccentric (more so). Everything you didn’t like falls away. You become light-hearted and playful. You’re happy.

CANCER Jun21–Jul20

CAPRICORN Dec21–Jan20

Talents and gifts you didn’t know existed within you are emerging and this will be a discovery both exciting and unexpected. You embark upon several new studies, directions and adventures. People consider you as someone who knows a lot about lots of things. You surprise everyone. They think of you as unconventional and studious. This is good. A new life story begins.

Home is in a state of change and fluctuations. Things feel disruptive and erratic. There is movement in, out, here, there. This is good. It means no crystallizations or rigidity can occur. Life is speeding up. Sometimes you feel if you move too fast you’ll make a wrong turn. You feel tested, needing to approach the home situation in new ways. Sometimes you feel free. Sometimes you miss someone far away. Boredom isn’t in your vocabulary.

LE0 Jul21–Aug22

AQUARIUS Jan21–Feb18

It’s possible you’ll be traveling soon, if you’re not already. Travel will be curious, unexpected, out of the ordinary. The journey will not be what you planned. You will meet unusual people who help you see life in completely different ways. Nothing traditional seems available, even though you long for this. Everything unconventional seems to know your name. Adapt. Your heart is stirred.

There’s a need for exposure to new worlds, new people, new lands and geographic areas. New opportunities come forth to express yourself and your gifts. You like to be with the people in the marketplace. Here you feel alive, in contact, love is released, people know and rely upon your expertise. You try to make contact with family, siblings, relatives. Your personal appearance changes. Your shell cracks.

VIRGO Aug23–Sep22

PISCES Feb19–Mar20

Unexpected events or happenings occur with shared resources of finances and money investments, taxes or loans. At first this doesn’t make sense. Then as time goes by it does. Allow yourself to realize that the pleasures you pursue and things you like do cost money. For some reason, you’ll feel you cannot depend anymore on your usual sources. Uncertainty results. You will find new paths and new resources and new people.

Over the next weeks and months, notice your values changing. All previous thoughts and desires disappear like cumulus clouds. New values and new endeavors emerge. A surrender to the present reality comes forth. There may be a sense of limitation, or a profound transformation that takes place concerning friends and/or associates. Unusual circumstances will bring about a different use of resources. All resources are to be used to build community. Study herbs and holy oils.

How so? For one, the butchers are just on it! They’re very friendly and good at what they do. Elsewhere in the store, if they happen to be out of something, stockers will go upstairs to look for it. The checkers are always chit-chatting with you. That’s fun as I like to talk with people. Someone’s constantly rotating Shopper’s local organic produce, so it’s always fresh and pretty. And priced well. They have a wide variety of wines — local, regional, international — also half-bottles, perfect for trying something new. I teach using herbs and spices as medicine — love their ginger and turmeric, and their teas, especially cardamom-cinnamon. I add it to coffee for balance.

Do you like to cook? My wife is a chef and does most of the cooking. I’m usually the breakfast ‘cooker.’ I’ll pick up Shopper’s organic eggs, spinach, onions, peppers, avocados, and a fresh salsa. Dinner, I tend to make Asian stir-frys using meat or chicken. They carry all the sauces and ingredients I like to use; also excellent Mexican sauces if I want to do fajitas. If I’m putting on an educational event, I may get hummus, gluten-free crackers — huge selection! — fruits, some healthy cheeses and wine, if appropriate. Did I mention Shopper’s unbelievable chocolates?! I tell those new to the community,“‘Come to Shopper’s — ‘you’ll be remembered and treated like family.’

What or who first got you shopping at Shopper’s? I just walked in one day. I came from Boston and was involved in organic produce. To this day, Shopper’s is my main store. I shop here almost daily for most of my produce, meat, and dairy. Everything is quality. I like Shopper’s intimacy: though not large it has everything I need, so I don’t need to go to other markets. I like that Shopper’s is locally-owned. I support that as it helps keep the finances flowing in our community. Plus they donate to many non-profits and allow the schools and so many groups to hold fundraisers up front. Shopper’s is known for their customer service. Not many stores can make that claim.

“I tell those new to the community, ‘Come to Shopper’s Corner — you’ll be remembered and treated like family.’”
